Salvador "Sal" Camacho

December 1, 1977 — March 18, 2024

Tucson, Arizona

Salvador Carlos Camacho, affectionately known as Sal, passed away in Tucson, AZ, leaving behind a legacy of passion, creativity, and love. Born in Tucson on December 1, 1977, Sal's life was characterized by his remarkable talents and unwavering dedication to his craft.

Sal thrived in his career as a custom cabinet maker, where his skills extended beyond woodworking to customizing cars and building motorcycles for loved ones. His expertise even landed him a feature in Low Rider Magazine, showcasing his exceptional talent to the world.

Beyond his professional achievements, Sal will be remembered for the profound impact he had on those around him. He shared an unbreakable bond with his wife Shannon Leigh Martin, whom he cherished and spoiled every day. Together, they were not just partners but best friends who navigated life's journey hand in hand.

Renowned for his encyclopedic knowledge of cars, Sal could identify any make and model just by looking at the headlights, an impressive skill that reflected his deep-rooted passion for automotive craftsmanship.

Sal's personality was as vibrant as his creations. He approached life with love and thoughtfulness, always going above and beyond for those closest to him. A true tech enthusiast, he transformed his home into a smart home which is a testament to both his intelligence and innovative spirit. His humor was sharp and laced with sarcasm, making him so fun to be around.

Among Sal's proudest accomplishments were his children: Kahleia, Carlos, and Kaleigh. Their presence brought immense joy to his life and fueled his desire to provide opportunities for their future.

In the hearts of those who survive him beats the memory of a kind son, husband, father, and friend. Sal is survived by his devoted wife Shannon Leigh Martin; loving children Kahleia, Carlos, and Kaleigh; caring mother Rosa Maria Camacho-Bedoy; siblings Rene Coronado, Melissa Coronado, Nena Camacho, Gabriel Martinez, Santiago Camacho, and Anthony Coronado; beloved in-laws Wayne and Darrelyn Martin; sister-in-law Dawn Martin; cherished best friends Net Armenta and Mary Jane Quiroga; adoring nieces and nephews Michael Madero (Gabby), Adrian Madero, Kaiser Camacho, Ty Coronado, Bella Coronado; as well as many other extended family members and friends.

He was preceded in death by his beloved Princess Adelita; parents, Carlos and Andrea Camacho; Abuelita Francisca and Nana Mary.
